TOUT COMMENCE EN FINISTERE - ARMOR LUX
6th participation

Profile

This talented Breton is as relevant on shore to prepare fast boats as he is at sea to get them to the right place quickly. But Jean Le Cam is even more than that. Over time and through his exploits, he has become a true "figure" of offshore racing in general and of the Vendée Globe in particular. He loves to regale the public with his countless nice words. Jean has never left the limelight: he took a magnificent fourth place in his fifth Vendée Globe after an emotionally and athletically intense race. Jean is and always will be a competitor and he will - whatever the circumstances - set himself realistic sporting goals to achieve.

Like Tout commence en Finistère, Jean's project Jean's project federates the region around its identity, its values of performance and solidarity.

Commitment

The ASE: social assistance for children

In the department of Finistère, 2,500 children are under the protection of the Departmental Council and almost as many are cared for at home. The Departmental Council has made child protection one of its main priorities. Jean Le Cam has decided, together with the Finistère department, to defend the cause of children by embarking them on the Vendée Globe 2024/25 adventure.
